Pennsylvania ping.

FWIW my Swiss-German ancestors settled in Penn’s woods in the 1740’2 and 50’s. They spoke German in their churches and in their parochial schools until the 1840’s. They continued to speak German in their churches until WWI.

But the NEVER insisted that the goverment cater to their language! NEVER.

This is hilarious.

So "Angel Cruz" is doing this.

Appears to be a professional Hispanic from his bio: Cruz. Believe he's Puerto Rican.

Undoubtedly trying to make a point about Offical English because as soon as this is voted down he'll say "what's the difference?"

Just another Reconquistador, trying to finally beat down the Evil Gringo.

Other countries don't let in their former enemies to rule them.

Here in Washington State they just passed a bill for $5 million a year in GRANTS (not loans) for illegal kids to get free college funding.

How are these kids supposed to know if they get the money if everything isn’t written in Spanish?

If that's how he feels, he should stand up for what he believes in and written it as "Una Resolución instando al Congreso de los Estados Unidos para designar el español como el idioma oficial de los Estados Unidos y con el mandato de su uso en todos los actos oficiales del Gobierno Federal."

Feel free to pass around a spanish language resolution to legislators who don't speak a word of spanish.

Mmmm. Hardly anybody in this country speaks correct English. The “professional” news anchors don’t know the difference between an adjective and an adverb. I think we should keep English as our official language, but it should be proper English. I will give Mexico credit for one thing. They teach their kids proper Spanish grammar.

It’s nothing but hatred for this country. It’s divisive crap. He should be reprimanded at least.

I kind of like ancient Hittite myself. (Sarcasm).

When the issue of English as an official language came up, President Bushie II said he would veto such a bill.

I’m sure the Obamabastard would approve of a piece of toilette paper like this one.

We NEED an English as an official language law and we should require a working knowledge of English to become a citizen.

That’s racist. Most black people do not speak Spanish.

Ebonics is becoming the national language.

It's my understanding that Mexicans, especially many of those who sneak into the US, do not speak proper Spanish, and not a few are illiterate.

PA Ping!

If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.

Thanks!

Thanks lightman for the heads up

Would it be wrong to suggest that more complex languages make children grow up to be smarter?

Would these “smarter” children be smart enough to recognize that American Jobs were lost to the Illegal Alien Invaders fromMexico?
